America “the BEST form of government which has EVER been offered to the WORLD”

To all the “protesters” a.k.a rioters and those causing chaos in America the following article is a history lesson that you obviously never got or slept through in school. If you still feel like America “sucks” there are many who will gladly help you pack your bags to leave if you refuse to sit down for a civil, ethical and moral conversation about practical constitutional changes.

America “the BEST form of government which has EVER been offered to the WORLD”-Justice James Wilson

James Wilson stated in Pennsylvania’s statehouse yard, October 6, 1787, regarding the U.S. Constitution:
“I will confess, indeed, that I am not a blind admirer of this plan of government …
But when I reflect how widely men differ in their opinions … I am satisfied that anything nearer to perfection could not have been accomplished.
If there are errors, it should be remembered that … the concurrence of two-thirds of the Congress may at any time introduce alterations and amendments.
Regarding it, then … I am bold to assert that it is the best form of government which has ever been offered to the world.”

Daily Devotional – YOUR SOUL

It struck me as I watched the news of these violent radicals burning cities and pulling down statues that their “GOALS” are in many ways selfish. While the intent of some “peaceful protesters” may be for lack of a better word pure, that is to do good, the mob is only in it for self.

The bible has a message for them and all those who support them.


 

36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Mark 8:36

Mark 8:36 (AMP and RVR 1960)


CONTEXT:

In v.34-38 we find Jesus gathering the crowd and telling them about rewards and sacrifices. Following Jesus (that is being a TRUE born again believer) comes with both great rewards (eternal life) but great sacrifices along the journey. Here are some examples: 

SACRIFICES: 

Jobs: Mark 1:16–20; 2:14

Reputations: Mark 2:18, 23–24; 7:5

Meals: Mark 6:30–31

Sleep: Mark 1:32–37; 6:45–48

REWARDS

Glory: Mark 9:33–3

Power: Mark 10:35–45

         Eternal Life: John 10:27–28

In the middle of this is our main text so let’s break it down: 


BREAKDOWN: 

For what shall it profit a man, – No one wants to be poor, men should desire to at the very least provide the basics needed to care for themselves (if single) or for their families if married. Jesus here is asking where is the greatest profit on earth found? 

if he shall gain the whole world, – He further asks, ‘if it were possible and you were to gain the whole of earthly riches’ and by implication is asking would that be enough to satisfy you? 

and lose his own soul? –  Only to lose your soul to eternal damnation what would you seek after today knowing this? v.37 (AMP) For what will a man give in exchange for his soul and eternal life [in God’s kingdom]?


APPLICATION: 

God does not reward selfish behavior. In fact one of the tenants of the Christian faith as taught by Jesus is to ‘seek first the Kingdom of God’ Matthew 6:33 and the cares of and draw of the world will be for naught. Seeking and following the path that Christ as Lord and Savior puts before us in never rarely easy, but the end result is eternal life in heaven. 

Those who insist on unrighteous violence, are guilty of loving the affairs of the world and ignoring the Lord. They are making a choice to strive for selfish earthly gains and spend eternity in hell. Pray for their souls.

… These trouble-breeders have but one purpose. It is to divide our people into hostile groups and to destroy our unity and shatter our will to defend ourselves.”

We have two guest staying with us for a week, they are 11 months old and 2 years old. Watching them and the complete chaos on many of our city streets the past few days, reminded me of the Apostle Paul’s admonition to the church at Corinth…

Logos.com

1 Corinthians 13 (AMP and RVR 1960)


CONTEXT:

Chapter 13 of 1st Corinthians has been called the LOVE Chapter because Paul under direct inspiration of the Holy Spirit writes exclusively about the excellency of and need for Christian Love in here.

We need to back up to Chapter 12 to get a running start to fully understand it though.  This chapter is obviously about spiritual gifts. Here in C.12 Paul has cautioned the Corinthians against using any spiritual gift without applying Christian Love. All gifts God has bestowed upon us are useless for the Kingdom if we do not use them for His Glory in Love. 

Note this is not some sappy, be a whipping post, push over love. If you really read the book you will note that none of the Apostles nor Christ ever behaved in that manner. This is true Christian Love for their neighbors, those in need, and most assuredly their brethren. 

In the midst of writing on Love Paul make an almost 90° turn in v.10 when he speaks of Christ’s return. Followed immediately by our text so let us break it down:


BREAKDOWN:

When I was a child,- Note past tense Paul is saying I am not longer a child, I am standing here before you as a man recognize me as such. 

I spoke like a child,- Our 2 year old guest Temory (sp) says stuff and I have no clue what he is talking about. It is okay, he is 2 and that is to be expected. Paisley the 11 month old just kinda smiles and yelps every once in a while. They are little and we have no expectations of them making profound statement. Paul is saying the same, as immature Christians there is an understanding that you (church at Corinth specifically but applicable to all true believers) must grown in Grace.

I thought like a child, – Likewise their still learning and so their thoughts and actions do not always make a whole lot of sense to us but at their age I probably did things even more unpredictable. This learning is called Sanctification. 

I reasoned like a child. – I love to watch Paisley find something new and look it over, stare at, it feel it, even try and eat it sometimes 🙂 all to try and figure out (reason) what it is and if it is good. She concentrates so hard her forehead curls. There is no excuse for not reasoning right and wrong. 

When I became a man, –  Again past tense so Paul is declaring he is in fact a man. Along with 2 youngest members of our household this week we also have our usual grandkids one of whom my grandson Té, turned 13 this year. He is a big boy and wants to be treated like a man, I remind him he needs to behave and act like one too. 

I gave up childish ways. –  In order to be recognized as a man, you must speak and act like one. Be articulate, and well groomed not looking like some radical ready to breed chaos. The bible (and our laws) says we must be obedient to those appointed over us; Parents, Government Officials, Church Leaders, Etc.


APPLICATION:

Let me try and bring this full circle, the rioters that brought all the chaos to the streets of America reminded me of Paul’s description of untrained (spoiled) children. 

I know you know what I am speaking of you all have been in a wally world or some other store and seen some 2-3 year old throw a tantrum or what my wife calls a “hissy fit.”  Just like so many of our city authorities parents many times ignore or just let the child continue and chaos in the store ensues. 

These “demonstrators” want to be treated as adults, they want to be heard, acting like children is not the answer at least biblically. Unfortunately the liberal politicians in our country will probably kneel down to their demands. 

Question since when did we allow children to run America?

OTHER:

Instead of Children why not consider some reasoned adult thinking, like that George Floyd’s younger brother Philonise Floyd who on Wednesday spoke before the House Judiciary Committee at a hearing on policing and accountability.

Whether you agree 100% with him or not, note he does not call for stupid radical change in Police Forces (disbanding, dismantling etc.) but simple changes that would effect every citizen of every color. I do not know his Spiritual Condition but I continue to pray for him and his family especially that they will use this incident, as tragic as it was to glorify God and not man.

Riots and the Need a Heart Transplant

With all the riots going on across this land I thought it prudent to visit an old friend, our heart’s. 

153 Best John Owen images | John owen, Christian quotes, Owen

There are a few ways we can look at what is happening in America at the moment one being surprise the other with understanding or maybe a combination of both. Here is what I mean. 

Many seem to be amazed at the extent of the riots. I for one am not at all. In fact if anything I am slightly surprised they are not worse or more wide-spread. Why, here are some of my reasons: 

With more and more of our major cities being managed by very liberal, don’t upset the apple cart, politicians, who denounce Judaeo-Christian values it is no wonder folks act like animals. Yes, act like animals if you have been watching the news that is exactly what these law-breaking thugs have been doing, acting like wolves, hyena, or other predators.

As tragic as the George Flyod killing was, many of these so-called protesters are just fed up with being cooped up from COVID-19, but instead of peacefully acting out they willfully acted with a depraved heart. Then you have the riot-tourists, those who just have to see what is going on, those who want to see something really bad happen to fill their sick desires.

How can I say those things, with understanding because the bible makes it real plain; Jeremiah 17:9-10 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it? “I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.”  Nothing good is coming from these rioters, Luke 6:45 nothing at all because their hearts are evil. 

These are acts predicated on man’s natural nature; here are some of the biblical examples describing man’s heart condition: 

Genesis 8:21: “. . . every inclination of his heart is evil from childhood.

Psalm 14:3:All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.

Isaiah 1:5–6: “Your whole head is injured, your whole heart is afflicted. From the sole of your foot to the top of your head there is no soundness.

Matthew 15:19: “For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.

The Blame Game is sure to start up in full swing. We have already seem evidence of some mayors and other officials blaming President Trump (seriously like he organized this). Yet the bible makes it clear that even sinful and unrighteous man is without excuse for in his soul he knows Romans 1:19-20; 2:14-16 enough to distinguish basic right and wrong. 

So do we really need to blame anyone; or would it be more profitable to just identify the core issue(s) and attack them head on. What has changed in America since the days of the Greatest Generation and In God We Trust? 

Think on this for a moment although declining in numbers the majority of Americans still claim to be “Christian.” If the majority actually stood tall and did the right thing (biblically) think of the difference we could make. The issue is even so called “Christians” fail the test far to often, just as the Jews did repeatedly in the Old Testament, thinking of them selves righteous more than God Almighty creator and Savior of Souls.

America needs a heart transplant ASAP. Of course I do not mean a physical, but a spiritual change of heart or I am personally convinced our nation (as we now know it) is doomed. We cannot continue on the path of self idolatry, socialism and big government all of which the Founding Fathers are turning over in their graves against. 

The Great reformer Martian Luther understood mans condition more than any of his time: 

Luther said he feared his own heart, more than Pope or Cardinal. The heart is the fomenter of sin. It mints evil thoughts-and blows up the coals of fiery passions. It is the Trojan horse out of which comes a whole army of lusts! Shall we not fight the good fight, and discharge with the fire of zeal against this bosom traitor, the flesh! The primitive Christians chose rather to be destroyed by lions without-than by lusts within! – Thomas Watson

Luther’s answer and our’s must be; Prayer, Prayer and More Prayer. We (The true Christian Remnant) need to pray daily for this nation, pray for God’s divine intervention, pray for the Holy Spirit to awake the rioters.

We need to pray for God to preform Heart Transplants among the masses for only he can change the sin nature of man. Ezekiel 36:26-27; John 15:5
